SIMPL-DIX (SIMulated Profiles from the Layout - Design Interface in X) is an X-window based interactive computer-aided-design tool for running process and device simulators. The current version of SIMPL-DIX invokes SIMPL-2 to create the cross-sectional profile of a device along an arbitrary cut-line drawn on the layout. It also provides a number of internal tools such as HUNCH to assist the designer in examining potential problems associated with a device topography. In this report, the internal structure of SIMPL-DIX is explored in detail. Issues regarding data structures, display interface, and application interface are examined. Information is provided to assist future extensions for incorporating additional simulation tools.
